Friday’s Internet Goodies: Livin’ Life Through Books

InternetGoodiesFelicia is passionate about every thing in life. Here is how she describes herself:

I enjoy reading, mostly YA books, and I love listening to music. I am always trying to find the latest adventure, something new and unique, and something that will change my point of view. Books and music rule my life.

I initially started this blog to start a reading challenge from a different blog I followed that required to have a way to view the reviews. I loved reading and I loved writing, and what better way to combine the two? At first, this blog was just for me, and I never dreamed that anyone would be interested in what I had to say about books. Then the comments started flowing in and the followers started piling on, I thought, ‘Wow! How awesome!’ I’ve seen other blogs, and never thought I could be a book review blogger. But then, the requests started coming in, and I was ecstatic!

Reading and reviewing books is just a hobby that I love and wouldn’t have an awesome group of friends with a great community if it weren’t for the authors and publishers. I love writing and hope to actually complete a novel one day, but that’s a long ways off! If you have the time, feel free to leave a comment, and am always looking forward to hearing your thoughts. 🙂

*In no way do I claim to be a professional book review blogger. This is a hobby for me, and I am not paid in any way except for the books provided from authors and publishers. This also does not sway my opinion of the book. My reviews are all honest, and my own. Thank you.

LivinLifeThroughBooksFelicia is most interested in reading young adults novels, specifically those that are paranormal, horror/ghost stories, romance, dystopian, thriller, contemporary, or psychological. To view her site, point your browser to: http://dream-wish-live.blogspot.com/

Friday’s Internet Goodies: Flying Off The Shelves

InternetGoodiesBeth Negri is a 25-year-old woman who has loved reading books all her life. Here is how she describes herself:

This all started with my Mom, you see she is an avid reader who strongly values education. When I was a baby she would always read to me, even when I was in her womb. When I grew old enough and wanted to read when she wasn’t around she taught me how, even though this was a while before I started school. She taught me the love of reading and learning which is truly the best gift she ever gave me.
So, because of her here we are. I have started writing book reviews. I write book reviews because it gives you time to reflect on what you have read and in a way extends your time with the book. I feel that if it is a good book at the end of the book you are a little sad its over because you just love the characters and learning about them. Books, when written well, can be just the friend you are looking for because they give us a little escapism (into a new world) and a new understanding of life (through the characters trials).

FlyingOffTheShelvesFlying Off The Shelves has a rating system for books. Like most others, it is a 5-point system, meaning that a review that receives three stars or above has a positive review, while those that receive one or two stars have a negative review. Unlike most blog reviews, Ms. Negri is willing to consider a second opinion review for those authors who received low reviews.

Beth Negri will read most everything, EXCEPT the following: Children’s Books (Young Adult {16+} still accepted), Muslim fiction/non-fiction, Christian fiction/non-fiction, New Age, Self-help, Hate-Speech Books, Audiobooks.
